The Herefordshire Sustainable Food and Tourism Partnership was formed in 2014 as a merger between the Herefordshire Sustainable Food Partnership and a new, grassroots led, tourism group.

The Partnership’s Terms of Reference are to:

  • Provide strategic oversight for the development and implementation of a sustainable strategy and action plan for Food & Tourism in the County of Herefordshire.
  • Link with key strategic bodies and organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors to promote a sustainable food and tourism strategy and its implementation.
  • Develop collaborative food and tourism actions/activities that act as a ‘showcase’ for authentic, real and genuine ‘experiences that delight’ the consumer.
  • Integrate consumers with the local economy, and enhance their health and well-being; whether they are visitors to the County or those living and/or working in Herefordshire.

It is a coalition of key individuals, organisations and networks committed to providing strategic oversight including consultants, private businesses, the Duchy of Cornwall, National Farmers Union, Visit Herefordshire, Herefordshire Rural Hub, the Rural and Farming Network, Herefordshire Council and the Bulmer Foundation.
